Sources

The journey of tracking personal data starts from “sources”. They are variables, classes and structures in the code which represent personal data. Sources are divided into 22 categories. There is a separate file for each category. You can see them in the rules/sources folder. Each file in the folder contains the rules for data elements belonging to that category.

Example

From the account_data.yaml file
sources:
- id: Data.Sensitive.FinancialData.BankAccountDetails
name: Bank Account Details
category: Financial Data
isSensitive: False
sensitivity: high
patterns:
- "(?i).*((?<!question)bank[^\\s/(;)#|,=!>]*(?:name|account|details|detail|address|country|(swift|bic)-code|(swift|bic)_code)|bank[^\\s/(;)#|,=!>]*account[^\\s/(;)#|,=!>]*details|(swift|bic)[-_]code|(swift|bic)code)"

Organization

Sources are present in rules/sources directory and are organized as follows,
|__rules
|__sources
| |__account_data.yaml
| |__audio_visual_sensory_data.yaml
| |__background_check_data.yaml
| |__biometric_data.yaml
| |__contact_data.yaml
| |__education_background_data.yaml
| |__financial_data.yaml
| |__health_data.yaml
| |__location_data.yaml
| |__national_identification_numbers.yaml
| |__online_identifiers.yaml
| |__personal_characteristics.yaml
| |__personal_identification.yaml
| |__professional_employment_background_data.yaml
| |__purchase_data.yaml
| |__social_media_data.yaml
| |__spouse_family_dependend_data.yaml
| |__technical_data.yaml
| |__usage_data.yaml
| |__user_content_data.yaml
| |__vehicle_data.yaml
| |__workplace_monitoring_data.yaml

Execution

When the code is scanned, Privado first marks the “sources”, then tracks it’s journey to sinks such as third parties, databases, and logs.
